Not much more you can say. This is his 2nd Gold at PyeongChang! The slalom requires skiers to weave in and out of tightly placed gates, and it's all about the control and strength of the skier.
Austria's Marcel Hirscher is the favorite, and he is going for his third gold medal of the Olympics. He has been the World Cup slalom champion in four of the last six years, and it would not be a surprise if he won that title again this year. Norway's Henrik Kristoffersen finished second to Hirscher in the giant slalom, and he won the bronze medal in the slalom in Sochi.
He is good enough to push Hirscher hard and possibly steal the gold medal.
Hirscher's other gold medals came in the alpine combined and giant slalom. If he wins another gold, he will join legendary skiers Toni Sailer of Austria and Jean-Claude Killy of France as the only men to win three skiing golds in one Olympic competition.
Wise won the event in Sochi in , and he has shown incredible creativity. His ability to land double corks makes him one of the most exciting performers in the event.
Ferreira is a first-time Olympian, and he has a chance to push Wise hard. Ferreira has regularly finished second in the event. Yater-Wallace had an illness-plagued run in Sochi four years ago, but he is healthy this time around and has a good chance to reach the podium.
